I think this was a bottle not stored well. The pour was great, nice orange color with a very generous and fluffy head that provided great lacing with foamy fingers. The aroma was somewhat skunky, although after a few minutes, I picked up some light spices. The flavor was like a cheap green bottled European import lager with some extra hopping and bready maltiness. Overall, very disappointing, as this wasn’t near my top oktoberfest experiences. Will have to try this one on draft in Munich one day to make up for what was likely a casualty of importation (even in a brown bottle).

500 ml bottle. Golden amber was a little hazier than I had expected. Nice big head that stayed around. Aromas were the expected malts with vanilla and some caramel. Bready too. Some smokiness on the flavor that was pretty nice. Other roasted malts in there...more bread, not a lot of hop bite, but enough to give it a slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty good for a syle i’m not a huge fan of...

Bottle from Bev Mo La Mesa. Beer poured a medium golden color. The head was white and very big! Aroma and flavor were mostly malty with some hops and fruit.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 The aroma is grainy and has mild floral hops, incense, and caramel malt. The appearance is red/copper with a foamy head that turned a little clumpy. The flavor is very malty and has plenty of caramel and some honey. It’s a simple taste but good. The palate is just right for the style but finishes papery. Very nice and true to the style but, it did have a couple of issues.

Wow! This was a nice beer! Crisp, smooth, and had a citrus flavor to it. A hint of carmel could be detected. Goes down good with some knackwurst and rot kraut.

In fairness, I will have to try this one agiain this fall. I drank this Oktoberfest beer in May, and it possibly just outlived its life. As for this one, it had a nice copper color, but a thin, white head and no lacing and little aroma. Taste was slightly hoppy, but mostly watery. At mid glass, hints of malt were trying to enter, but were mostly overcome by stale taste. Metallic finish left me not impressed at all with this. Again, given the high ratings by others, I’ll try a fresh one this fall.....as fresh as I can get in Atlanta, GA.

Pours a amber color with a slight haze to it. Smells and tastes a aweful lot like a saltine cracker. Biscuity nose and taste with a malty, and wheaty aftertaste. Not really any hops in this one that i can taste.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours hazy amber color with a white head, aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and hops. Flavor is malty, sweet, citrus, and spice. Not my favorite Oktoberfest, but good.

Dark amber. Small, dense, off white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty caramel, a touch of honey, and subtle, crisp hops. Same flavor with more honey and more hops. Smooth, medium body. One of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours orange in color with a very thin white head. Lots of little bubbles coming to the top. Aroma of bread, caramel, toasted wheat cereal. Very mild flavor, very hard to pick anything out, it is malty, I don’t detect any hops and finishes with a wheat taste that lasts for a little while. A little fruity sweetness comes through as it warms. Medium bodied, but feels a little watered down.
